Reed hadn’t complained when Jayn wanted to spend the first day in their cabin. After three days, he was beginning to worry. He opened the door and stared out. “I think I can understand.”
Jayn was sulking on the bed. “I feel so stupid. How can I call myself a warrior when I am scared of…. Of….”
“Nothing.” The view played tricks on Reed’s senses. The island was on the other side of the boat. When he looked straight ahead there was nothing to be seen but blue grey haze, graduating to a paler blue in the sky. The horizon was invisible. Staring at it too long confused Reed’s perception of up and down. He shook his head and jerked it around to get a view of the ship. With a point of reference he felt so much better. He motioned for Jayn to join him.
“They cannot expect us to fight over this stuff. One or two sharp turns and we will lose all sense of what is up and what down. It is so different in the mountains.” Jayn pulled on a smock and slowly crossed the room. Reed put his arms around her and they stared out together.
I’ve got my first product listed on Renderosity. It’s a selection of woodland and park background photos for Poser renders and other images. There are fourteen images at 1600 by 1200 pixels, each in three versions- the image and two levels of blur to simulate depth of field.
Poser 6 allows you to set depth of field in renders and will blur the foreground and background for you but, after waiting nearly fourteen hours for a scene to render, I figured that it’s sometimes simpler to cheat. So the depth of field images can be set as the background for portraits and headshots, and could be useful for keeping attention focussed on the action in a comic strip.
